Re-creating Chores

United States
October 25, 2015 9:44pm CST
Do you remember having to do some chores when you were little to learn some responsibility, or have some bonding time with a parent or grand parent ? I do but I was not sure I could handle that level of responsibility, ya know feeding people with my so-called playfulness with food that would actually taste good. Well needless to say, watching and learning, cutting, chopping and combining over the years became an art, but tonight and yesterday mum and I just plain made it all different. We made Cooking and baking all weekend, FUN ! Do you enjoy cooking or bored by just having to eat ?

I love cooking and baking but I was so unwell during the weekend that I made nothing.

Yes. My late Mama was a dressmaker. Whenever she had to finish a bridal gown, she used to ask my elder sister & me to help on its beadwork. We enjoyed doing it as it was when the 3 of us become engrossed in the task at the same time have so much time talking about anything, from plants to moviestars! And now that I already have my family, our daughters & I always find time to be on a certain task or activity, say, drawing, playing musical instruments or cooking simple meals like their favorite Adobo. Those moments are always worth remembering!

I love cooking but with just me I find it tends to go to waste so I make smaller meals or buy the tv dinners.

During the week it is just myself around dinner time and even then I have to be creative with a limited budget and foods I can metabolize effectively

I don't consider myself an expert in cooking, but I find it enjoyable especially if it's done with other family members. Great family bonding time!

I like to cook once in a while. I enjoy doing other things more ... writing online, tidying up the house and spending time at the beach.

I remember having a lot of he horse as a kid. It is very frustrating with my own children because I do not ask a lot from them, yet they can't manage to do what I do ask of them.

Be gentle in instruction and constant with the rewards and soon your children @Samanthavv they will see that good work can be fun work and responsibility won't seem like a chore !

Thank you Valerie @just4him because we played with the food, a little less demanding and more open to suggestion, we created together something we can see as a favorite now ! Look out holiday foods

I like cooking quite a bit. I even have my own saved recipes on AllRecipes.com and listen to America's Test Kitchen.

I like to cook..I just wish I had more to cook. I learned all of this when I was a young age..I had responsibility while my Mom was at work.
